Asphalt Contractor Announces the 2023 Top 30 Editor’s Choice Products Award Winners

Asphalt Contractor names the 2023 Top 30 Editor’s Choice Products Awards, which highlights the innovations, tools and technologies available to help contractors and producers work more profitably, efficiently, and sustainably.

Asphalt Contractor, the nationally recognized magazine serving asphalt contractors and producers, has named the 2023 Top 30 Editor’s Choice Products Award winners, highlighting the innovations, tools and technologies available to help contractors and producers work more profitably, efficiently, and sustainably.

This year was especially crowded with new and interesting products for the asphalt industry, in the wake of the 2023 CONEXPO/CON-AGG tradeshow. Every product selected was done so based on either an innovative feature, unique process, new mechanism, or whether the product has shown a lasting, consistent impact upon the marketplace. While it is important to highlight what is new and cutting edge, it is also important to recognize the tried-and-true tools that continue to perform and assist asphalt pavement professionals year-after-year.

“We are truly excited to spotlight the winners of our 2023 Top 30 Products Awards,” says Asphalt Contractor Editor Brandon Noel. “The rapid pace of technological innovation and the speed at which new products come to market in the road building and asphalt industry is incredibly competitive. This year’s winning products include the types of improvements and impacts that can truly help contractors be more efficient and, ultimately, separate them from competitors.”

The award-winning products represent the asphalt industry’s best products gaining interest from end-users and asphalt professionals alike. The awarded products were chosen based on submitted nominations and audience engagement during a 12-month period on, and narrowed down by the editorial team and advisory board.
